Updated with quotes for February 2016:

Classic:
Nothing so liberalizes a man and expands the kindly instincts that nature put in him as travel and contact with many kinds of people.
Mark Twain, letter, 1867.

 

Direct:
To migrate, especially alone, to an alien environment full of people with strange ways, and to be forced to integrate oneself — that is the kind of move that sets the mind to working inventively.
First Sociology, 1982, p. 453.

Garden moment for February 2016:

Ferns and Spanish moss thrive on branches of the "Old Senator," a centuries-old live oak (Quercus virginiana) in St. Augustine, Florida.
